Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address
Saturday, March 4, 1865
http://www.bartelby.org/124/pres32.html

'Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether."
With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.'

I think we should spend as much money on educating kids today, as we did on educating Abraham Lincoln when he was a kid.

His favorite 3 books were The Bible, Weem's Washington and Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan.

Here's Weem's Washington:

and of course the BIBLE...

Proverbs 19

1 Better a poor man whose walk is blameless
than a fool whose lips are perverse.

2 It is not good to have zeal without knowledge,
nor to be hasty and miss the way.

2 St. Peter 2:12-22

12But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.

13They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.[e] 14With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed—an accursed brood! 15They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Beor, who loved the wages of wickedness. 16But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey—a beast without speech—who spoke with a man's voice and restrained the prophet's madness.

17These men are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them. 18For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of sinful human nature, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error. 19They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. 20If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. 21It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. 22Of them the proverbs are true:


"A dog returns to its vomit,"[f]and,

"A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud."

Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan:
http://tinyurl.com/nx5kaj


Mark 10:17-8

Now as Jesus was starting out on his way, someone ran up to him, fell on his knees, and said, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.

--> It sounds like Jesus does not consider himself to be God.

President George Washington, First President of the United States of America = BEER LOVER

George Washington's Recipe for Beer

George Washington was a devout beer lover. In particular, he was fond of the dark, English-style brew known as porter, and always demanded that an ample supply of it be kept on hand at Mount Vernon, his Virginia estate. However, it was not porter, but rather "small beer," for which Washington once recorded an early recipe. Preserved in the manuscript collections of the New York Public Library is a notebook kept by Washington, which includes the following hand-written recipe.
"To Make Small Beer

Take a large Siffer [Sifter] full of Bran Hops to your Taste. -- Boil these 3 hours then strain out 30 Gall[ons] into a cooler put in 3 Gall[ons] Molasses while the Beer is Scalding hot or rather draw the Melasses into the cooler & St[r]ain the Beer on it while boiling Hot. let this stand till it is little more than Blood warm then put in a quart of Yea[s]t if the Weather is very Cold cover it over with a Blank[et] & let it Work in the Cooler 24 hours then put it into the Cask -- leave the bung open till it is almost don[e] Working -- Bottle it that day Week it was Brewed."

"The Worcester regulations also ordered that all
tiles should be marked with the maker's sign, so
that any defects in size or quality could be traced
to the party responsible. Earlier in the same century,
in 1425, there had been many complaints at
Colchester of the lack of uniformity in the size of
the tiles made there, ^ and at last it became necessary
in 1477 to pass an Act of Parliament to regulate the
manufacture."

OF THE MIDDLE AGES, page 120

and then the Brits dumped Winston on the curb as soon as the war was won.
'k you much, bye now.

Course Winnie had some peculiar ideas 'bout rearming the Germans and pushing Uncle Joe back to the pre-WW2 borders.

But then the Brits have always had weird ideas concerning borderlines.

And go back a few hundred years... not even the SS had tortures as horrific - in terms of sheer pain...
The shaft, for instance.
That was a hot spike up someone's anus. Ouch.

Drawn +_ quartered.
Giddy-up hosie.

Burned alive at the stake.
We Yanks hung our witches, we didn't burn them.

Love The Kinks though!
